Most of us in the Capital Region were spared from the major storm that blanketed the Northeast heading into Christmas weekend. Our neighbors in Western New York were not so fortunate. Blizzard conditions and a remarkable amount of snow paralyzed the region. Cars were abandoned along many roads, power was knocked out to thousands and there was even some looting that took place.
Crews did the best they could trying to keep up with the weather, but there were even occasions when plows got stuck. Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown called it a ‘once in a generation storm‘. A total of 28 deaths are being blamed on the massive storm that dumped nearly four feet of snow.
Parts of New York State that weren’t hit as hard are sending help to Western, NY. Albany County is sending twenty plow trucks to Erie County to help crews dig out.
People of #Buffalo have been amazing for 2nd time this year. Such an underrated city. I really feel like the rest of the country just doesn’t quite grasp the severity of the #blizzard, hopefully I shined some needed light on the area. #buffaloblizzard2022 #WinterStorm2022 #NYwx pic.twitter.com/5nhQWUBjTN— WxChasing- Brandon Clement (@bclemms) December 26, 2022
